    Neutrik USA has introduced the new NL2FX speakON connector, replacing the outgoing NL2FC connector and, in the process, providing several important improvements. The new NL2FX uses the proven latch and strain relief design of Neutrik’s acclaimed STX series, which is identical to that used on the company’s popular NL4FX. Further, this robust new connector has higher power handling capability (40A RMS per contact versus 30A RMS for the older NL2FC), providing the ability to accommodate an even wider range of… View this story

    Mackie has introduced two new versions of the DL1608 and DL806 digital mixers that include the Apple Lightning connector, enabling direct docking of the iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini (using the new iPad mini tray kit). While both of these iPad devices currently work with DL mixers wirelessly via Mackie’s Master Fader app, physical docking offers advantages. In addition to device charging, users will have access to 2-channel recording straight to the iPad and the ability to playback audio… View this story

    Sommer Cable has introduced the HICON HI-J63MA05, a 90-degree angled jack plug connector. The new HICON HI-J63MA05 offers an anti-twist solid pin with a hard gold-plated contact tip, as well as a sturdy metal housing with scratch-proof coating. In addition, mechanical reinforcement under the jack pin prevents the pin from coming off with a “jerky” movement).

These fields include networking, telephony, lighting, electrical and others. Many tell us that audio is the most confusing thing they have encountered in their technical careers – and it is no wonder. Consider the input types that may exist on a mixing console. I found all of these on units sitting around the shop. There are nine (9) analog topologies and… View this story
